Costco Coming to Pilsen!! There go all the small shops–hear that sucking sound.

Posted on July 30th, 2010 in McKinley Park, Pilsen.

I personally oppose a Costco coming to 14th and Ashland. It will provide jobs but it will take away entrepreneurial businesses. The 16 acre tract of vacant land within the IL Medical District

Costco Is Coming To Pilsen To Suck Your Store Fronts Vacant!!

initially was being considered for a 12th district police station and now it’s going to be a business killer site of a HUGE Costco! If you live in Pilsen you can still call you Alderman Danny Solis and or/ email him and tell him to try to stop this damaging move. Merchants from the community cannot compete with these megastores’ and I believe we will see store vacancy rates on Cermak and Damen drop in the next five years… and property owners will suffer.
